Integrated research on the sustainable use and management of the Ocean System is in its infancy with research communities just beginning to come together to consider the full range of economic benefits, ecosystem services, and human impacts. We will explore the existing challenges in the space as well as present a novel, integrated approach that takes into account both anthropogenic use, governance, and impacts on the marine and coastal environments, coupled with consideration of the natural components and functions of the Ocean System. We will explore the approach framework through consideration of the impacts and intersections of maritime shipping.
